Harris bags tactical radio orders
Harris Corporation has received two orders worth $29 million to deliver its Falcon tactical radios to an undisclosed European country, it announced on 28 April.
The radios were ordered as part of the country's standardisation programme to ensure interoperability with partners in coalition operations. Under the orders, the company will supply AN/PRC-117G multiband networking manpack radios, AN/PRC-152A wideband networking handheld radios and AN/PRC-150C HF/VHF tactical radios.
The AN/PRC-152A handheld radios provide high-speed networked, simultaneous and secure data and voice communications. The AN/PRC-117G manpack radios combine legacy narrowband, SATCOM and wideband networking interoperability to support multiple missions. The AN/PRC-150C HF/VHF radios provide long-range data and voice communications.
Chris Young, president, Harris Communication Systems, said: 'These radios will ensure that our customer has secure interoperability with US and NATO forces. With wideband networking capabilities, warfighters will gain improved situational awareness and access to a common operating picture.'
